Kazumi's House

We shot the other day at a mid century modern classic from architect Kazumi Adachi. You can see more of the house here.  The debate of the day was wondering if the Picasso was real.......

The Cloud

We used the Cloud yesterday to help control the sun over our pool.  20X20X5 of helium filled diffusion.

Sunrise over Mulholland

We were shooting yesterday on top of Mulholland Drvie.  The morning fog made for some dramatic moments as the sun rose.

Blue Garden

By the fence, our Breath of Heaven was consigned to Heaven after a very tough summer and we replaced it this morning with a Blue Bush Germander.  Hopefully it can handle the heat better.  We added some tuffs of Blue Fescue and Elijah Blue Fescue over by the Spanish Broom and sprinkled a few succulents around, as well.

Fall Garden

Not much in bloom after the hot summer.  A few splashes of red and purple.  A touch of blue and yellow.  Longer nights and damp mornings should get a few things growing soon.

Weekend Dog

The Rude Guest

The normal gaggle of birds was disturbed this morning by a big squirrel looking for a drink.  He was gone just as quickly and the party got back together.

Billy Acts

 I was on set last week only to find that one of our actors was Amy D's nephew Billy..... and that it was his first acting gig.  Glad to be present at the beginning of a great career.

Stair Meister

The dog has been wanting to take the stairs connecting two streets on our morning walk.  It's about 9 flights of steep hiking and for a 12 yo dog, I'd think he'd prefer the easier route.  But I guess there are sniffs along the way worth the effort.  The view at the top is almost worth it.

Grasshopper Killer

I've been noticing far fewer grasshoppers in the garden.... and now I know why.  I came across a very fat mantis tonight while watering. I'm hoping he has room for a few more pests.


Two of our car prep guys making sure every inch of this car is perfect to shoot.
